New Web Design, More Cracked CDs, & A Scorpion, Oh My!

Ok, so it doesn’t have quite the same ring as “Lions, Tigers, and Bears, Oh My”, but I bet it got your attention.

New Website Design And What It All Means.

Yes, you may have noticed my site looks somewhat different.  After a few years of the same ole site, I thought it was time for a change.  So I opened up my graphics program, brushed up on my limited website coding skills, and got to work.

My goal was to create a theme that conveyed the sense of a seasoned world traveler, as in a traveler who is spreading the Gospel to every corner of the earth.  Thus, the graphics of a worn out travel journal, passport stamps, and the subtle world map in the background.  lions and tigers and bears, oh my

Now, I’m not implying that I’m about to set off on a world tour (although I would be game). I just wanted the theme to reflect my mission of “virtually” traveling the world to share my music and the Gospel with as many people as possible.

You might also notice that the new site is structured as a blog. This will allow me to better engage with all my peeps on a more personal level, and on a regular basis.

Despite my quiet and shy demeanor…ahem….I do have a great deal to say and a lot of new songs I would like to share.  As such, I plan to feature the stories and inspiration behind some of my music, give sneak-peeks of some of my unpublished songs, post music videos, and even share some of my top secret songwriting tips for any budding songwriters out there,

More Cracked Jewel Cases Found.

As of yesterday, I was under the delusion that I only had two cracked CDs left.  I was about to close down the sale and announce that the Cracked Jewel Case CD sale was a “smashing” success.

I then received a last minute “cracked jewel case” order for multiple CDs.  Uh-oh!  Since this order was for more than two CDs, I was suddenly wishing I had more than two left.

Seeing as how I only skimmed my inventory before, I did have a hunch that more damaged CDs might be lurking about.

daffy duckSo I took the better part of an hour and went through my entire CD inventory, one by one.  Lo and behold, I found enough to fulfill the order in question and have a few left over to boot.  Woo hoo!   I also found a few Abandon CDs with cracked jewel cases.  Double woo hoo!

The good news is, If you missed out on the previous announcements about my cracked jewel case debacle, you can still get one of these CDs (or more) for a ridiculously low price…and that now includes both Abandon and A Childlike Faith.

Just so I don’t delude myself again, I did wise up and activate the inventory counter in my shopping cart.  Now we can all know with certainty how many CDs are left.

And A Scorpion?

As I was going through my CD inventory, I was surprised and shocked to find a pesky bark scorpion hiding in one of the previously unopened cases of CDs.

Scorpions are no strangers to those of us living in the desert southwest; they’re almost as common (and numerous) as house flies. It’s not as common, however, to find them in the house, let alone in a sealed box inside an interior closet.  This lead me to ponder two obvious questions:


  1. How did that little bugger get into a completely sealed case of CDs?
  2.  Have I inadvertently mailed out any scorpions with any of my past CD orders?

All I can say is, they must have some mysterious way of dematerializing and then rematerializing to be able to get inside a completely sealed box.  (I apparently watch too much Star Trek.)  Needless to say, I’m still baffled as to how the little “skwerp” got in there.

As for the second question…if you did get a scorpion with your CD, don’t worry…there is no extra charge.  Just consider it an unadvertised bonus.

And if you don’t wish to get one with any future CD orders, rest assured, I will inspect them much more closely from now on.

Have a great weekend!
